Abstract

This Interactive Qualifying Project was conducted over the course of the 2009-2010 year by an interdisciplinary team of researchers at WPI. Our goal with this project has been to consider the varying aspects of the automobile industry and its future to reduce petroleum usage due to growing concern about pollution and climate change. Our focus lies in alternative fuel cars, specifically in the emergence of hybrid vehicles recently. To do this, we did research on many facets of the auto industry, performed statistical analysis, and conducted interviews and focus groups.
